“Great food, great price, great staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

The food is always above average for a quick meal, the prices are comparable to fast food, and the staff is friendly, competent, and dressed very professionally. The dining room is always clean and the place is always packed. Even when the restaurant is totally full I've never waited more than 5 or 6 minutes for a to-go order and my order has always been correct. I highly recommend this establishment!

“They Only Do One Thing, and They Do It Well ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Not a deep menu, but everything on it is AWSOME! Odd "drive-thru" set-up, that creates it's own traffic jams at peek hours, but is reminiscent of "old timey" drive-ins. But, eat in, even if it is just for the super-high-tech-self-serve soda machines. Good Food, Friendly Service, and Decent Value.

We visited on July 4 and ate the most amazing fries and chicken strips ever. Great quality, service and value. Excellent for families. We will return every chance we get!

“Homemade sauce is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

This place is all about their chicken and the homemade sauces. Loved the ranch, it is amazing! I would highly recommend the tenders don't bother ordering anything else (other items are fine but the tenders are why you would drive 30 min extra)!

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

What a diamond in the rough. An old looking building with a gravel parking lot would not give you any clues to the good food served at Tenders. The grilled chicken sandwich, chicken tenders and of course the milkshakes are all delicious and worth the price. Half-price milkshakes every day from 2-4 pm. Fast service no matter how busy. Enjoy!
